Those receiving this Specimen Sheet are requested to^ for- 
ward at once, to the compiler, care of the publisher, as full an 
account as they are able to give of their ancestry, made out in 
the same form as that of the: family of Jonathan Church, which is 
given as a specimen on page 6. If sufficient encouragement is 
obtained it is proposed to issue a full Genealogy of the Church 
family in an octavo volume, at the price of ^zr dollars a volume. 
As it is impossible to go on with the work until subscriptions are 
obtained to the minimum number of 200 or 350 volumes, the 
members of the Church family who are interested in the issue of 
the work will please inform \Vm. C. Church, Editor Army 
and Navy Journal, who has consented to act as publisher and 
treasurer, of the number of copies they are disposed to subscribe 
for. 

The Church family is one whose record ought certainly to be 
preserved; and every generation that succeeds makes it less and 
less possible to obtain a complete record. It includes, among the 
descendants of the present generation, Fred. E. Church, whose 
name heads the list of American Artists, Judge Sandford E. 
Church, Chief Justice of the State of New York, and others of 
whose character and reputation any family might well be proud.

PREFACE 



Thoughtful and virtuous families, descendants of the good 
old Pilgrim stock, lovers of liberty and advocates of true freedom, 
will cherish a commendable pride in treasuring up the memories 
and in recording the noble acts of their ancestors, for the emula- 
tion and inspiration of their posterity. 

These few pages are mere fragmentary sketches to foreshadow 
an issue of a book of permanent form and value, and to inspire 
in the Church family a sufficient zeal to search out hidden items 
in their family history, and supply missing links in the genealogical 
chain, so that the Compiler may issue a volume of correct history. 

Having spent a number of years in a similar work, and 
gathered considerable material for this, he is prepared to carry 
out the plan designed and gather together the scattered branches 
from a variety of sources throughout the land, and thus construct 
a tree geneological of true symmetry and of valuable reference.
